and and saying that what are the differences going to be with hillary clinton gone and john kerry stepping in. we don't know what kind diplomat. >> hillary clinton is a rock star, i don't know if president obama used her to the fullest extent. she covered more countries over 100. and what we may see from john kerry is perhaps more focused diplomacy. certainly he has a lot of experience on the syria front. in the past he has worked, and i've written about this, as an informal envoy for the united states in afghanistan and elsewhere. and he'll be hankering for that kind of role where he can make a difference in some of these conflicts. there is a sense my sense from talking to people in washington is that president obama would like to pivot to asia but there is no doubt that he'll remain bogged down in one way or another in the middle east and north africa as we've seen in the past few days has become a major problem. that's where we'll see senator kerry head pretty soon. >> michael: let's talk about north africa, at least 35 people were killed when the islamists took hostage at the bp facility. is
hearing will begin for her possible replacement, senator john kerry. brian? >>brian: one of the most patriotic organizations in our nation making it their business to find jobs for our veterans every day who are wounded in battle. now they are calling on the government to do the same thing. lieutenant general, what is the government not doing that you are? >> i think right now one of the major problems is that the government and the public sector and private sectors are not reintegrating our disabled veterans back into local communities. they have a large role to play, both the veterans affairs, as well as the department of labor. i was in d.c. here the last couple of days. we've been working with them to help fill that gap. >>brian: in what way? it's hard enough getting jobs right now in this economy. veterans' unemployment is a little bit higher than the national rate. then you have people who are dealing with some type of wound as they try to get back into the workforce. do we have to curry the jobs towards their skills? >> no, i don't think so. i think these disabled veterans bri
of state, john kerry, and chuck hagel, which he has gone a lot of flak for it, to the secretary of defense? >> those are promising choices. john kerry may finally liberate himself with a push from chuck a goal. they are going to have to take on the military-industrial complex and reduce those mass of weapons systems that were designed for a soviet-peristyle hostility like the f-22 and nuclear subs. they're going have to cut the military budget down from its $800 billion, and get out of afghanistan and iraq. and whether they have the chemistry and the political fortitude to do so, it remains to be seen. but i think they are a better choice than their predecessors. i think john kerry will be better than hillary clinton, who had to be macho all the time. and panetta, chuck hagel will be better than panetta, who was kind of a fill in. and spent weekends back in california where he really wants to retire. there is a little promise there. but again, it requires the resurgence of mass demonstrations in washington this spring to develop a convergent policy from the militarization of foreign-policy
, speaks out for the first time. nbc's kerry sanders is outside kelly's home in tampa, florida, this morning. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it's been three months since news broke of the secret love affair between general david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. it all came to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has been totally turned upside down. >> kelly came to him to the interview to try to clear her nam
kerry. he is going to be amongst the crowd with his wife. none of these chairs were here two hours only. only started putting them out at about 5:00 this morning. probably because they wanted to make sure any weather concerns did not cause any problems as far as getting all that out. you can see the staff is businessly making their way around this area trying to make sure everything corresponds to where it is supposed to be. there's one thing about this inauguration it is timed to the second and everything you see here today is not going to be an accident. inaugurals are preplanned weeks and months in advance. we are going to see the execution today for a plan in the works for many, many weeks over the past couple months. send it back to you tony and allison. >> thank you very much. >> really in some respects this day is starting off pretty routine for the first family, they are waking up in the white house and already learned the ins and outs of living in the executive mansion now for the past four years. >> in a little while, the special events will begin. the first time we will see t
john kerry. eight years later, not one gay question came up. the gay issue never came up as a wedge issue, eight years later. i think that's also a great sign of progress how far this country has come on the issue of -- on the issue of gay rights in to toe, not just same sex marriage, but should gays and lesbians be treated equally under the law, as the president said in this is inaugural address and to add on something joe just said, i'm not sure in 2014 democrats in swing districts will be running away from the president's inaugural address, i'll be curious what the president says in his state of the union address, that's where he gets down to the nitty-gritty of policy descriptions for the country. >> one of the other quick moments, i was thinking about the defense of marriage act, the fact it's coming up before the supreme court and the president gave stonewall unprecedent ed mention in the inaugural address. you had story the other day in the "new york times" about a gay couple, two women soldiers in afghanistan, who needed post-trauma counseling and went -- their chaplains tol
seat should john kerry be confirmed for secretary of state. >> i spoke to a lot of friends of mine. >> what did they say? >> what an interesting idea and some of them said yeah i think you could win it if you wanted it. mostly they said you should think really carefully about whether that's wh to do. ♪ i've seen fire and i've seen rain ♪ >> reporter: for the time being at least, what james taylor is meant to do is make more music. he promises a new album is still to come but for today's inauguration he chose to sing a patriotic anthem. >> it's a nice tune that you're singing. >> it is. "america the beautiful" is a beautiful thing. it's a version of the song that i have been playing for a couple years. and i know the song well. i've got a good shot at it tomorrow. >> yes, you do. i suspect that you will. what could go wrong? >> nothing. nothing could go wrong. >> very interesting. >> i don't think anything is going to go wrong for james taylor today. >> and now we see the president and the first family leaving the church of the presidents where the president sits
